Elijah Abete

Elijah and Mary Ann likely came to Utah between 1851 and 1853.  Their names do not appear on the 1850 Utah census or any other census in the United States, and the first documentation to place them in Utah is their rebaptism which took place 6 November 1853.  Further research is needed to determine the year they came to Utah and the name of the pioneer company they traveled with.

The 19th Ward record confirms his birth date and his place of birth as Washington, Massachusetts, USA.
